Gasoline vehicles rarely have a vacuum pump, those are usually on diesels, for the simple fact a diesel engine doesnt create its own vacuum. The air conditioner on most newer vehicles when engaged not only turns on the the compressor clutch but the computer tells the engine to advance the timing thereby saving fuel and giving more of the power back that is lost due to more load. If the engine is getting hot and its losing power on most vehicles when they are overheating they start sputtering for various reasons but the overheating is the cause, so look into your cooling system for the problem, on most of the newer small cars that have electric fans, when you kick on the A/C it automaticly turns on the radiator fans for the condenser coil to get maximum cooling for the system, so if the fans arent kicking on in defrost (which uses the A/C) or A/C mode then the problem starts there

Engine diagram 22r

what about your fuel pump? when it get hot it stops and when it gets cool works. It is better as soon as you do have the engine shut off when is hot,try to check if any fuel is coming from the fuel tank to the engine if it doesn't the renew the fuel pump. Also my advise is to ask your mechanic as an expert he does have the special equipment to check the fuel pressure flow to the injection system,or if it is your vehicle fitted with carburettor to check the mechanical fuel pump whether it does send fuel at all.
Good luck.

The motor in my 1979 corvette will turn over but won,t start.I would like to no if it,s the caruretor or the fuel pump. The motor is a 350

So I will assume you have spark, seeing how your questioning whether it's carburetor or fuel pump. With a mechanical fuel pump, the easiest way to check is to disconnect fuel line at carburetor, and aim it in to a pop bottle, or similar container. Remove connector at distributor so no spark.
Crank engine over and see if fuel runs in to bottle, or container. If good flow, pump is o.k.
The proper way would be to hook a vacuum gauge up to inlet of fuel pump and crank engine and note vacuum.

After taking my 2000 Expedition to my Ford Repair Shop three (3) times for a "Service engine soon" warning, they found a clogged vacuum line from the gas filler tube. Since they fixed this...

You have a symptom known as "extended crank".

Most commonly these is caused by fuel pressure bleeding off with a hot engine also known as a hot soak.

Two common things that can make this happen are the fuel pump itself or the fuel pressure regulator. You can check the regulator yourself. it will be on the drivers side of the engine about miday down the fuel rail.There will be a red vacuum line (i think its red) going to it. Remove that line from the regulator. If you see gas the regulator is bad. If you don't see gas start the vehicle with the hose off and wait a couple of minutes and then shut off. If you see gas know replace the regulator.

If you still don't see gas than you will need a fuel pressure gauge. This will help determine if the pump is not holding pressure or whether the regulator is no longer holding fuel rail pressure.

Good luck!

P0171 and P0174 Left and Right bank lean trouble codes pulled from ECU. Check Engine Light illuminated.

P0171 = system too lean bank 1
P0174 = system too lean bank 2

The fuel/air mixture is too lean for the entire engine. The fuel pump pressure could be too low. The fuel pump pressure regulator could be at fault. There could be an air leak downstream of the MAF sensor. MAF sensor (hot wire type) could be dirty. Check for intake manifold vacuum leaks. The engine coolant temp sensor and/or the intake air temp sensor could be faulty (stuck at full hot mode).

All cylinders full of fuel. 4.0L V6

Sounds like the fuel pressure regulator diaphragm has ruptured. When this happens fuel is drawn in from the manifold vacuum and if the leak is severe enough the fuel pump pressure will push it in as well. The unit is a small component that resides on the fuel injector rail and will have a vacuum hose running to it. Remember you are working with GASOLINE and lots of it so be careful!

Check the fuel pressure regulator. Its a vacuum assisted device that sits on top of the engine. Pull the small vacuum hose off the regulator and see if it is wet with gasoline. If so replace the regulator - AutoZone $60. Let me know.
